Watch the horrendous "infield fly" call in Atlanta that led to fans littering the field

Hey, so it is the debut of the Wild Card game and the Cardinals defeated the Braves 6-3 tonight at Turner Field. The Braves lost a key opportunity in the eighth when Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons, with runners on first and second and one out, hit a fly to shallow left field and the ball fell in an apparent miscommunication by Matt Holliday and Pete Kozma. Somehow, someway, the umpires called an infield fly rule at the last possible second, leading to a 20-minute delay where fans littered the field. Bravo.

Let's go to the videotape.

Ridiculous. Great way to mar this "Wild Card" nonsense.
